Enchantings: Modernity, Culture, and the State in Postcolonial Africa – Thursday April 26th-Saturday April 28th, 2012

The Institute for Research in the Humanities is sponsoring a three day long symposium filled with over a dozen different lectures detailing the trials and tribulations of Africa in a post-colonial world.  The event will cover the affects of post-colonialism on the governments, culture and social history of Africa in the last fifty years.  These topics will surely cover Northern Africa, or the area that falls under the nomenclature of the Middle East, as well, meaning that this symposium is certainly relevant to Middle East Studies.  Head over to the website for a more detailed look at lecture schedules and content.
